Welcome to the website of Church of the Palms, a part of the United Methodist Church, where we believe a life connected to God, and a life connected to one another, is the most meaningful life there is!
Rev. Thomas Pearson, District Superintendent, was present at Church of the Palms on August 19 for a special Charge Conference.
At this meeting the following individuals were elected to serve as a Building Committee to lead the process of designing and building an addition to the current church building.

The Charge Conference also approved the opening of a Building Fund to receive contributions towards this project.
We are establishing a local mission opportunity to reach out and be a presence at Okatie Elementary.
Please prayerfully consider becoming a lunch buddy, teachers helper or participating in the after school garden club or starting a knitting / crocheting class.

Words From Brother Paul: Body Language
This Sunday, August 24, we conclude the mini-sermon series "Words From Brother Paul" as we look at Romans 12:1-8
Although we haven't examined all 11 chapters in Romans prior to this point, we are aware that they contain considerable theological discussions. But now in Chapter 12, Paul turns to an explanation of how this theology should be applied in our daily living.Read more...
The Brothers!, who gather for breakfast and study on Thursday morning continue their study of Daniel at Daniel 8:1 when they next meet on August 28 at 8 a.m.
The Book of Daniel is one of the books of scripture that takes place during a period of judgment. Against a backdrop of paganism represented by the culture's idol worship and Nebuchadnezzar's arrogance, the faithful purity of Daniel allows the power of the God to be seen in magnificent and wondrous ways.
This book makes it clear that the true God is the supreme ruler over heaven and earth, even when all the evidence says otherwise.
Brothers Too!, an early Saturday morning breakfast and Bible study with Pastor Pete, continues August 30, at 7:30 a.m. at the church building.
Never too late to join this study, the group will pick up the study of Luke at Luke 17:20
Meeting every other Saturday, this time of fellowship starts with breakfast from 7:30 a.m. – 8 a.m. followed by a Bible study until 8:30 a.m. Open to all men, this new opportunity is especially designed for those still working or with other obligations during the week.Read more...
